Rated 3 out of 5 by cciam Difficulty of material
Due to the difficulty of the problems, I have to give help. Some of the problems are way too difficult for an 8th grade student. But I love the way the Lord is included in the material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CSAOwls Good Text Overall
My students have liked this curriculum; however, it has been difficult for them to grasp on their own. The students have been challenged and I am hopeful it has prepared them for Algebra 1. I have two 8th graders. One was able to teach herself until she got to chapter 6. The other needed a lot of assistance starting with chapter 4. They believe things could be explained better in the book and there should be consistency in the vocabulary used in the text and on the tests. It has been frustrating having the terms changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TaxiMama Solid, God focused curriculum
My son used this text for 7th grade. He is currently using a rigorous Algebra 1 text in 8th grade. I feel BJU pre-algebra text prepared him properly for Algebra 1. I appreciate how BJU Press always finds a way to give glory to our God throughout the text. My daughter who is currently in 7th grade is now using this pre-algebra text. Though math may not come as easily to her as her brother, she has been successful with it and will also be prepared for the same Algebra text as her brother. Oh, and both their national standardized tests in math has been in the high 90 percentiles...98% usually...not bragging...just using a solid curriculum.
